The lovely ladies at Borough Belles WI are having a night dedicated to DIY publishing, this week.
They kindly invited me, along with other fabulous zinesters, to talk about our love for indie press.
AND YES, THERE WILL BE CAKES AFTERWARDS.
Borough Bellew WI – September meeting
Wednesday, September 17 – 7.30pm
I hope you all had a lovely International Women’s Day, this past weekend.
I went to Wowzers Festival in central London and reported on it for Feminist Times, if you fancy a read: Wowzsers: “Controversial themes are overlooked in bigger events”

It was amazing.
This weekend sees the launch of the first WOWZERS festival, a FREE two-day event packed with a series of workshops, live bands and dj sets to bring awareness of gender inequality.
In collaboration with Women of the World Festival, at the Southbank Centre, WOWZERS will run from 12 till late at LSE Student Union, in Central London.
Daytime activities include group discussions on street harassment, interactive sessions on queer history and workshop aimed at empowering women as individuals and a professionals.
In the evenings, it’s time for some fun with cabaret acts, live bands and dj sets – curated by Carousel & The Girls Are.
Check the complete programme here.
Attendance is free, you can reserve your spot at: http://wowzersfest.org/

Tomorrow marks the beginning of International Women’s History Month: March.
Come and celebrate with some grrrl noise + zines at the Hollaback Riot Night [RELOADED] at ULU (Central London), it will be fun and I will be there selling Ten by 10 which is already a good enough reason to pop by, right?
On top of that, if you’re into feminism/gender inequality issues/art/digital stuff (and chances are, if you’re reading this, you probably are), here is a recent project I put together, ‘Please, Mind the Gender Gap!’, which reports on gender disparity within the London contemporary art scene.
Any comment welcome.
